The care provided by Cole Memorial’s highly-skilled anesthesiology team extends beyond the operating room. They conduct preoperative assessments of patients, an evaluation process that carefully considers both the patient’s current state of health and the planned surgical procedure that allows physician anesthesiologists to make judgments about the safest anesthesia plan for each individual patient. Physician anesthesiologists care for the well-being of the patient postoperatively while the patient emerges from the effects of anesthesia. Additionally, they are often involved in the management of acute postoperative pain.
